Average TSP account balances have grown steadily - and impressively - over the years.

Average holdings for both FERS and CSRS participants crossed the 6-figure mark in 2013. Since then, they’ve risen steadily to the mid- and high-100s into the early 2020s.

By the end of 2021, the average FERS account balance was $181,279, and the average CSRS account balance was $196,424.

Here’s the break-out of the average account balances from 2012 to 2021. For most recent figures by month, see this article.
